New Year New Me
Wednesday, January 04, 2012
Well I was doing good last summer, then we had some Major financial trouble, due to the fact that my DH was off work for so long (you can't pay your bills on unemployment, hell you can't even survive on unemployment) So the last time I was on Spark I was doing good and had gotten down to 185. That was the lowest I had been in years. I "fell off the wagon" in August, I just gave up, I really didn't care at all, I went out and got a job, to try to help with our finances (minimum wage doesn't help out much) but we did get by, and things are a lot better now. At least through all that my hubby and I managed to stay strong and together. But with working and being a mom, oh did I mention my daughter started high-school? (so I'm pretty much freaking out over that too) I stopped weighing myself and eating healthy the last time I did get on the scale at the beginning of December I weighed 195. OK I was disappointed but I thought OK not too terrible. Then came Christmas parties and cookies... etc. so when I got back on the scale on January 1st it told me 202... Crap, I swore to myself I would not go back over 200 again. So I am now getting myself back in the game, my hours at work have slowed way down (I'm working at a local toy store, so needless to say the Christmas rush is over) I'm averaging one or two 4 hour shifts a week. So I have NO excuses anymore. I'm not going to eat whatever I want, I'm going to track what I do eat, and work out again. I know I need to work out, obviously you can see what not working out for six months has done to me. So here goes, new year, new attitude, new me. I have to at least get back to where I was last July, if I could be 10LBS lighter than that I would be soooo happy. But at this point I'll just be happy to get back to where I was last summer. Watch out 2012 cause here I come, and I'm so ready for you.
